entertainment facility. Home to the Siena Saints Division I Men’s Basketball Team
of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC), and the Albany Empire of the Arena Football League, the Times Union Center
hosts a variety of events ranging from concerts to family shows to sporting
With 17,500 seats, the arena has had the privilege of hosting concerts
such as the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Cher, U2, Fleetwood Mac,
The Eagles, Justin Bieber, Billy Joel, Elton John, Kenny Chesney
and more! We pride ourselves on having something for everyone.
From the kids to the sports fan, the Times Union Center welcomes an
average of 500,000 patrons annually to events like Trans-Siberian
Orchestra, Disney On Ice, Monster Trucks, Home Show, and Auto Show.
Averaging around 150 events a year, the arena has had the pleasure of hosting some of the most historical events in
NCAA history and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the NCAA. In 2001 the NCAA Division I
Men’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four sold out the arena and Boston College was crowned NCAA Champions for the first
time in the school’s history. In 2002 Cael Sanderson completed his NCAA career undefeated by winning his weight
class at the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in Albany, NY, and in 2003 Syracuse University won the
NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball East Regional’s in front of a sold out crowd at the Times Union Center. 2010
brought record breaking crowds out to the MAAC tournament when we eclipsed the all-time MAAC attendance
record by drawing 53,569 fans. In 2017 and 2018 the arena hosted the NCAA WBB Regional games.
The Times Union Center has been honored to be named in the Top 10 Venues in the world 5 times. We have won
11 Prime Site Awards and been named SMG Building of the Year 3 times. Together, our partnership will open up a
new world of opportunities for your company.
There is only ONE Times Union Center, and your company should be a part of it!
